't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over

: there are few people we think we know more about than president barack obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton, and everyone has an opinion-- about their politics, their marriages, and a rivalry that is one of the richest in american history. on friday we had the opportunity to sit down with the two of them side by side. the white house offered us 30 minutes, barely enough time to scratch the surface of their complicated personal and professional relationship, let alone discuss their policies on iran and israel, russia and china, egypt and libya. there has been much speculation about their evolution from bitter opponents to partners in the corridors of power and the motivation for doing this interview. now you can be the judge. this is very improbable. this is not an interview i ever expected to be doing. but i understand, mr. president, this was your idea. why did you want to do this together, a joint interview? >> obama: well, the main thing is, i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of sta

that president obama is not looking to moderate and move to the middle but is instead looking for a political fight. >> i decided not to comment between the election and the inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we're looking at here? what kind of path and trajectory he was putting his administration on. all of the statements and all of the comments lead me to believe he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. and that is my concern. jon: ryan also focused on the nation's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclude he thinks we ought to have more government-run health care and rationing. i don't think that is going to work. jon: let's get back to karl rove. karl, what about his thoughts on a president bent on conquest? >>

that and what marco rubio said. there is not one consistent strategy. remember a few years ago president obama was boxed in by immigration. he had put the enforcement into effect, but he hadn't sort of made the system more gentle, more welcoming. politically he was in a bad spot with latino voters. a ton of pressure. now the funny thing about the situation is that politically, just politically, this is a win for him either way. >> even the dream act was there. there was a question as to what was going to happen with that. now through executive order he is somer assaulting. >> you have bobby jindahl saying we can't be the stupid party anymore. who wins out? >> they're all wrong. they're talking about the problem with the party -- the problem with the party is policy. seven days after the election, the ohio legislature, i assume with the blessing of governor kasich passes -- defeated in mississippi. i mean, what were they thinking? what are they thinking? i think they've got to look at themselves and say we've got to control the tea party aspect of this party. we've got to get back to taking pos
recall, in the november election, president obama got about 70% of the obama vote while romney got about 27%. connell: we are bringing brad blakeman and. doesn't senator mccain pretty much sum up the politics of this? >> absolutely. the smart thing is it is not only republicans. they now form an alliance in the senate with democrats. we have to be careful that is aligned does not work into a super committee. what the senate needs to do is lay the groundwork smartly before the president's speech and then sub this out to the committees in the senate in order to do their work. whether it is on border and homeland security, taxation and then the house has to do the same. connell: i want to ask you a question in a moment on what the republicans need to hold out on and not give in on no matter what. all all of the attention, so far, has been given on a pathway to citizenship. a lot of the ceos are very big on this. that should be the thing that the republicans are pushing war than anything else. >> absolutely. we should be providing scholarships and places and our universities for the blind th
, and politics is a contact sport. it was a very, very tough campaign between senator clinton and senator obama, as you portrayed in those past clips. however, i think the genuineness of their relationship came through in that interview. there clearly was regard and respect by both. they worked together. i think they've had an extraordinary run at it in terms of foreign policy. i think secretary clinton has supported the president. i think that's reestablished our standing around the world. i think they managed an exceedingly complex, fast moving and difficult situations in a very skilled manner. i think she gets high marks, soledad, both from republicans and democrats, and from the american people and internationally. >> so she talked about how hard it is on the spouse, and he talked about how hard it is on the staff. so i guess my question would be is bill clinton kind of over it? you've known him since you were 5 years old. he's been very supportive of president obama. critical, i think it's fair to say, but has he also moved on? or is the spouse always struggling? >> i think both made good
